CSA Program

A CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, was started in Japan as a way to "buy in" to a farm- you pay up front when the farmer needs money at the beginning of the season and receive the bounty as the weeks go on with a bag of fresh produce every week.  If the farm does well, your bounty will do well, but if a drought, plague, or other natural occurrences affect the crop you help buffer the farmer's poor crop.
